This a to do list for the month of October, and a quick guide on a few future posts. I want to summarize what I’ll be doing this October and Halloween season. My plans are simple. I need to observe quarantine and stay safe. But that doesn’t mean we still can’t have a good time! So here’s a quick summary of all the things I want to do for October and Halloween 2020.
Watch all the movies
I discovered a list of Halloween movies filled with titles that I hadn’t seen yet. So you can guess what I’m going to do! I’ve already watched The Blair Witch Project and The Shining… I know, I know, but I was super sheltered as a child. Ask me about most of the movies and TV shows from the 1990s. I can promise you that I haven’t seen them. My mom was worried about showing me violence and gore, as any mother might be… But she kept that up even when I was in high school! Sorry mom, but I’m watching all the things I missed out on!
Plan a dinner spread
I got the idea for a dinner spread from another Halloween magazine and thought it was amazing. It basically took a lot of finger foods and combined them for a dinner party. Instead I’m going to do the same for us on Halloween. We rarely do something out of the ordinary when it comes to dinner so I can’t wait to start planning for this! The last time we had a Halloween party, I made so much food that I had to finish myself… And I don’t want a repeat!
Enjoy Holiday snacks
I placed an order with My American Market and bought some of their Halloween goodies. Most of them were chocolate but I came away with some good finds! You can bet I’ll be sure to share that haul when it arrives!
Read Halloween books
I’ve finally jumped back into reading after months of a reading depression. I just couldn’t read anything without my mind wandering 1000s of miles away. I finally finished The Living by Isaac Marion, author of the famous Warm Bodies series. This book was the last of the series but it left me wanting more. So I grabbed a few titles from the Goodreads Horror List to look into. I’ll share what I’ve decided to read in an upcoming post!
It wouldn’t be one of my posts without the mention of selfcare. I splurged a bit and bought some Halloween 2020 nail polishes. Now I’m a huge sucker for limited edition items but the two I bought really sunk their teeth in deep. I can’t wait to share them with you!
I hope you guys have wonderful plans for October. Even if you don’t celebrate Halloween, this month is a beautiful time of the year. The change of the seasons captivates me each year and 2020 is no different. Even if we’re stuck inside, it’s the perfect time to get cozy with a hot cup of tea (or coffee!) and a good book or show. Please stay safe during this season!
